“If You’re Right with God . . .”

“If you’re right with God, everything else is fine; if you’re not right with God, everything else is out of place. Being connected with God is the most important thing there is”–Alejandro Villanueva, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman.

“We cannot attain the presence of God because we’re already totally in the presence of God. What’s absent is awareness. Little do we realize that God is maintaining us in existence with every breath we take–Richard Rohr.

“I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be greatly shaken–Psalm 62:1-2.

“You’re likely to forget a lot of what you read in the Bible if all you do is just read it. To really let it sink in deep, you’ve got to lock it away for safekeeping, memorizing the verses that are speaking to you. It’ll take some work, but it’ll pay off with a life that’s lived by the Book”–The Gift.

“The one who lives with integrity lives securely, but whoever perverts his ways will be found out”–Proverbs 10:9.

“Sometimes your choices are not between right and wrong but between good, better, and best. Then the only way to make the best decision is to determine what God would want you to do in that particular situation or with that certain amount of time”–The Gift.

“Many times our human desire to be acceptable to everyone keeps us from being real in all but the most superficial ways’–Jim Smoke.

“Somewhere, somewhen, somehow, we who are worshiping God here will wake up to see Him as He is, face to face”–John Baillie.
